After a slow start to their respective seasons, Lightning QMJHL prospects Mark Tobin and Stanislav Lascek had big offensive nights on Sunday as the opening weekend of the 2005-06 QMJHL season came to a close. After dropping a 5-0 decision to Quebec to start the year last Thursday, Tobin and Rimouski came back strong Sunday against Drummondville, winning 6-2. Tobin recorded two goals and an assist in the game to go along with two penalty minutes and a plus-two rating. Tobinâ€™s first goal came five minutes into the second period and proved to be the game winner for Rimouski. He added a power play goal early in the third. Lâ€™Oceanic was outshot badly in the game, 48-22.
